The Zilla Silver Reflector Dome is an aluminum dome lamp that's perfect for heating and lighting reptile terrariums. With its uncoated finish, this lamp is designed to withstand extreme temperatures while also providing economical operation. The premium ceramic light sockets can handle all-day operation of heat bulbs, and the lamp comes with a 6-foot power cord that features an in-line on/off switch positioned near the fixture for easy use.
Ectothermic reptiles rely on external sources such as the sun for warmth, as they are unable to produce their own body heat. They utilize this heat energy to maintain their bodily functions, digest food and stay healthy. Therefore, heat lamps are necessary to provide the heat required by reptiles.
